About Glasgow Chamber Choir - A European Odyssey

Our November concert takes you on a musical journey around Europe, from a joyful setting of a Galician lovesong from north east Spain, to a spell-binding evocation of a night of snow, Un Soir de Neige by the French composer Poulenc.

From Finland we bring you Jakko Mäntyjärvi’s cantata Canticum Calamitatis Maritimae written in 1997 and dedicated to the memory of more than 850 people who perished in the shipwreck of the car ferry Estonia in 1994. The cantata is a setting of verses from Psalm 107 alongside news reports of the disaster in Latin, combined with words from the requiem mass.

At this season of remembrance, we also include mass settings from Scotland and Spain: Kenneth Leighton’s beautiful mass for double choir first performed in 1966, and parts of Francisco Guerrero’s Missa Sancta et Immaculata, written 400 years earlier in 1566.

The concert promises to be an emotional journey through time and space.

GUERRERO - Missa Sancta et Immaculata
LEIGHTON - Mass for Double Choir
MANTYJARVI - Canticum Calamitatis Maritimae
POULENC - Un Soir de Neige
SALEEB - As de cantar

Refreshments will be served afterwards.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Glasgow Chamber Choir - A European Odyssey are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
